The first group of Normandy Veterans have visited the British Normandy Memorial in Ver-sur-Mer.Veteran Patron George Batts MBE Leg d’Hon and Harry Billinge MBE Leg d’Hon visited during the last week in October along with a group from The Spirit of Normandy Trust.

‘Wonderful’. ‘Moving’. ‘Tranquil’.

Just some of the words used by Veterans as they walked amongst the 22,442 names inscribed in stone high above Gold Beach.

Watch the moment they arrived at the Memorial for the first time in this poignant film documenting three special days.
